ATLÉTICO DE KOLKATA SIGN STEPHEN PEARSON

ATKFans.In is delighted to announce that Stephen Paul Pearson has completed his transfer from Motherwell FC.

Pearson, who scored the Rams’ promotion-clinching goal at Wembley in 2007, is leaving Scottish club Motherwell to join Atlético de Kolkata.

The 33-year-old has previously had a spell in India with Kerala Blasters.

“We are desperately disappointed to lose Stephen but we’ve known for some time now that this move was on the cards,”
-said Motherwell boss Mark McGhee.

“It was very much our first option that the player remained at Motherwell but when we spoke with Pearo, it was clear he really wanted to go over there.

“There was absolutely no fall out, it was all extremely amicable, and we understand his personal circumstances.

“He leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Motherwell FC.”

Pearson added:
“This was something I was really keen to do and I want to thank everyone at Motherwell for the way they’ve handled this.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I go but, at the same time, I am confident the club is in decent shape, with a very good manager and some exciting young talent bubbling under the surface waiting to get their chance, alongside the excellent senior professionals already there.

“I’ve enjoyed my second spell at Fir Park. I want to thank the fans for all their support and who knows, one day I may be back for another go at it.”
